I laughed at the idea. I rode one and couldn't quit smiling. I bought one and am still smiling. I've owned at least 50 motorcycles over the years, but I don't believe I've ever enjoyed one as much as I do this Zero FXS electric. A big bonus is, it is Made in U.S.A. I don't do long rides, so the ~35 miles per battery charge isn't a problem. The loudest sound is the wind and the small amount of sound the bike makes sounds like something out of Star Wars. It weighs less than 250 pounds and will do 0-60 in under 4 seconds. I just wish my 72 year old reflexes were half as good as this bike.
